Here is a list of mentions of the CAVA project in other media:

  1. In October 2017 and July 2018, articles announcing the CAVA project were published in the Eastern Daily Press newspaper.
  2. In August 2018, John Phillips was interviewed by Radio Norfolk about the CAVA project. He discussed the details of the project, highlighted that the MRC had funded the project in full, and also explained that the project is a collaboration between the University of East Anglia (UEA), the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and Wright Design Limited.
